Motorola Charm to be Named the T-Mobile Motorola Basil


We can’t tell if Basil is the codename or market name, but it appears that what we were introduced to as the Motorola Charm could end up getting a name change before hitting the market. TmoNews got their hands on what looks like a training document or user guide for the device showing it with the name T-Mobile Motorola Basil.


We’re throwing our chips at the prospect of its final name being the Basil due to the fact that we saw the device on one of T-Mobile’s leaked roadmaps earlier in June.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
